AFAIK, Lua team doesn't ship lua.pc file anymore.

So far, I see only two packages that use pkg-config. One (www/lua-curl)
uses unversioned lua.pc, the other one (wn/notion) uses lua5.x.pc,
while we use lua-5.x.pc.

I think unversioned version is a bit easier to correct because you don't
have to append a special variable:

unversioned: lua --cflags lua
versioned  : lua --cflags lua-${LUA_VERSION} # <- need to pass it to MAKE_ENV
